Can you believe it is already August 1st?
Where the heck has the year gone?

Remember my August challenge begins today...

A Photo A Day in the Month Of August

Remember the only requirement is that is a happy photo :)
I want YOU to smile when you look at the photo you took!

Oh, I guess there is one other requirement...
Post your smile inducting photo in the comments below,
post it to Instagram using the hash tag #xtremelyv,
post your photo to your blog post and attach a link back to my blog,
or email it to me (click on Contact for address).

Can't wait to see all of the photos you will take and share with me this month!

Now, onto the actual post for today...
Linking up with Sheaffer @ Pinterest Told Me To, Shay @ Mix & Match Family,
and Mel @ The Larson Lingo

And here are my recreations....

Rock & Republic Skinny Jeans
White tee from Old Navy, super old (similar)
Mossimo Black Flats from Target, super old (similar)
Wilson's Leather Jacket, 2 years old (similar)

Black tee from T.J.Maxx, (similar)
Factory 5" Chino Short in Neon Persimmon (sold out) from J.Crew Factory
3" Chino Short sold here in exact color
Mossimo Black Flip Flops, super old (similar)
Harvey's Large Satchel in black

Side note: I have had the Harvey's bag for about 5 years now
and it still looks like new!
There bags really are quality!!!
I am not into designer handbags, and not many people know about
this company or like the look of a seatbelt bag.
It is perfect for me, and worth every penny!
I have the wallet (similar) and coin purse (similar) too!
Seriously, check them out today!
